Superior Care and Superior Services Wherever You Call Home
When it comes to end-of-life care, understanding hospice care and how it can benefit you and your family can empower you to make informed decisions for yourself and your loved ones. Hospice care is compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to a patient’s needs.
The hospice team provides care in the comfort of a patient’s home, nursing home or assisted living center. Patients also can receive care in a hospital or at one of our Hospice Houses.
Receiving hospice care does not mean giving up hope or that death is imminent. The earlier an individual receives hospice care, the more opportunity there is to stabilize a patient’s medical condition and address other needs.
Hospice care is focused on quality of life and making the most of life. Hospice helps patients experience joy, reminiscence, laughter, reunion, and hope. Hospice care is available to patients with a wide variety of conditions, including congestive heart failure, Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, chronic lung disease and more.
